Good Job!

My son Stevie is 5.
He found the 3 kittens who were lost (not just their mittens). It was no big deal to me. We'd have found them eventually! (their meowing usually gives them away!)
About 10 minutes later, he asked me, "Mom you didn't say 'Good job' yet."
I was almost speechless! "I'm sorry, honey. I just forgot! You really did a good job finding those kittens! And I am proud of you! Good job, Stevie!"
All this was really said kind of off hand, because he recently doesn't like me to be too schmoozy with him.
Then he blew me away!
"Thanks Mom, God already whispered "Good job! to me, but I like it when you remember to tell me!"

Amazing lesson to speak my encouragement to others loud and clear!

  1. Good job, Casey.


  2. How are you liking the WATP dvd's? I did the 1 mile today and thought it was a bit too slow so tomorrow I am going to try the 2 mile one. I am just starting my exercise routine so I am starting off slow.
